Welcome back to part two of our feature and interview with Kearstin Nicholson, our July 2012, Cosplay Babe of the Month. All right, let’s get right back to our interview and more of her outstanding photos.
Comics Ninja: We see that you are looking to join the 501st. If you do, what costume to do you plan to wear?
Kearstin: So far I have about 25% of a Royal Guard completed, but it’s been put on the back-burner so many times I’m not sure it will ever happen at this rate!
Comics Ninja: And now for the tough part of the interview. Better bar scene, Tennessee or Chicago?
Kearstin: I actually did not live in the south long enough to drink there haha. I lost an accent in practically kindergarten. However, when really drunk or extremely pissed off, sometimes a little southern Belle comes out. My entire dad’s side of the family is all down there. With the passing of my grandma, RIP, she was the only one that ever called me “Kearsie Fay”.
Comics Ninja: Which movie would you rather watch on a rainy Sunday Big Trouble in Little China or Hot Tub Time Machine and why? Careful there is a right answer.
Kearstin: HA! I’ll opt for the autofail… neither! As I’ve never see either!
Comics Ninja: Wow, that is very disturbing. We’re almost considering cancelling the rest of the interview. Good thing you’re so much fun. Let’s continue. What character would you be if you could be any character in real life?
Comics Ninja: If you could have any superpowers what would they be?
Kearstin: See above!
Comics Ninja: What costumes are you planning in the near future?
Kearstin: It’s a secret! I do love the element of surprise when it comes to premiering new suits. Keep an eye out for Dragoncon 2012, as I’ll be attending in my biggest most epic suit ever! And it’s NOT spandex!
Comics Ninja: Any advice for fellow cosplayers planning to go to the conventions dressed as their favorite characters in the future?
Kearstin: As much as I condone the idea to have confidence of “being anybody you want because you don’t care what others think”, I do recommend wearing a costume that fits your body type. You can be sexy, be confident and look absolutely stunning. It doesn’t mean you have to wear “the hottest most popular” character. Fit and show to your body type. Wearing a character’s bikini whilst overweight doesn’t make you confident, it makes you look stupid.
Comics Ninja: And I just cancelled my Aquaman costume idea. Thank you very much. Any last parting pearls of wisdom or otherwise to pass onto the readers? Any websites we should check out to see more of your wonderful costumes?
Kearstin: Definitely! I’m a fond user of the internet as I can never get my face out of my iPhone. Thanks a bunch for this opportunity! Find me here!: www.kearstin.com, twitter.com/ikearstin, ikearstin.tumblr.com (NSFW!), facebook.com/kearstinnicholson.
